Pathophysiological Changes With Left Ventricular Assist Device Support

These researchers are studying blood-flow stagnation near the aortic ventricular surface after implantation of a left ventricular assist device. Flow stagnation leads to thrombus deposition and fibrosis of bioprosthetic aortic valve leaflets. The researchers are using MSI laboratories to perform computational validation of flow stagnation.
